This walk circumnavigates the old town of Orvieto and would take a few hours to do the entire thing. We expected a walk offering wonderful views up to the town and interspersed with historic sites on the way. The reality was a little less exciting...More

This walk takes you around the outside of Orvieto. You can see some sites and some nature on a clear nice day.

After many visits to Orvieto we finally did this hike. Pretty nature walk, great views and historically very interesting with hidden churches in caves and Etruscan sites.

The walk around the whole base is about 5km and very interesting. You can see a number of historical sites along the walk although access to most of the caves is not possible. You can get some good views of the surrounding area as well...More

Not a bad "walk" around the base of the city. Unfortunately the city seems to have ignored it as a tourist spot. Not well keep and scattered trash in many spots...especially where kids throw paper airplanes off of the Rocca. About 5k and up and...More

Myself and a friend took the hike around the Orvieto Rock and saw some interesting sights. However, this hike is not for the those that are not strong hikers. There were many ups and downs and the grades were steep. We had to take a...More
